Places are good and bad, positive and negative. They are good/bad for certain plants, for particular people, or for relaxation or concentration. The qualifier lies in the subject or its original and subjective connection with a particular place. What is good for one is not necessarily good for the other. [...] - Apart from the rich variety of stories that are shared within the dowsing tradition. - Kivari K.

Adjective /

(Agriculture; of farmland) plowed and harrowed but left unsown for a period in order to restore its fertility as part of a crop rotation or to avoid surplus production. In addition to this purpose, it can be used as a means of weed control, combined with other practices, such as planting rotation.

 

A fallow period of time is one in which ‘very little happens’.

This ongoing project began in a period of suspension, due to the COVID-19 pandemic that is plaguing the world. In a movement of seclusion, I moved to an inactive farm, originally built in the late period of the apogee of the coffee plantation in Brazil. The property, listed by the regional cultural and architectural heritage, has a part of the original Atlantic forest, vegetation of random and harmful species that has taken over the areas previously intended for planting, in addition to 'exotic' species consciously transferred to elaborate a botanical garden private.

 

 

Fallow is a time of pause and creativity. A moment to stop and look at yourself and notice the interaction of non-human species. It is a zone of inspiration and a large-scale experiment with an indefinite duration.

In a short space of forest it is possible to capture the diversity of birds. Biologists have already seen and cataloged about 130 species inhabiting the farm.

Different folk belief motifs relating to illness caused by underground beings and energies seem in some way to be similar to beliefs about dowsing, although in fact they are too far from each other both temporally and culturally to have a direct relationship.

A lenda do Boitatá (mboî-tatá: serpente-de-fogo) se origina do povo Tupi, nativo do Brasil. Muitas descrições da lenda 'Boitatá' o conectam com ignis fatuus, ou os fenômenos ígneos conhecidos como "fogo-fátuo".

 

Boitatá pode respirar fogo, ao qual é resistente. Seus olhos são deslumbrantes e brilhantes, seu olhar pode cegar. Ele também é um nadador bastante poderoso e pode se camuflar ao se moldar para se parecer com uma árvore caída queimada.
